Matheson Uncollected is the first of two volumes showcasing Richard Matheson's previously unreleased work, as well as the screenplay for an old Star Trek episode. The price for the collection is high, but each copy is signed by Matheson and Guantlet Press is only printing 500 copies of this volume. So if you're a Matheson fan you owe it to yourself to get one before they're all gone, and as of the writing of this review there are still copies available. The unpublished shorts may be a little on the short side, but they're mostly solid stories. But the real treat here is one of Matheson's unfinished novels, which although incomplete is vintage Matheson. Written with the understanding of how people really think, set in a far future that is familiar, "Colony Seven", is the gem of Matheson Uncollected.

From official release/information:

From publicity material: Matheson Uncollected: Volume One contains 10 short stories, many of which were published only as Gauntlet Press chapbooks and have never been made available to the general public. The book also includes his most recent short story, "Pride" (2003). Two other rarities are included: Matheson's sole (and classic) teleplay for the original Star Trek episode of "The Enemy Within", and an aborted Sci-Fi novel, Colony Seven. All add to Matheson's incredible legacy and show his depth and scope as an author.
